Are investigators from federal agencies eligible to apply for ARRA Awards?

0

In general, Federal institutions are eligible to apply for NIH grants, including research project grants. However, special policies apply to awards to Federal agencies. They are described at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/policy/nihgps_2003/NIHGPS_Part13.htm Federal institutions also must meet the eligibility requirements of the grant program from which support is sought. However, according to the NIH Grants Policy Statement, PHS organizational segments, other than IHS hospitals, may receive NIH grant support under exceptional circumstances only. NIH does not intend to classify ARRA funding as an “exceptional circumstance”; therefore, the standard rules would apply. CDC and FDA employees can collaborate, but would not be eligible for direct extramural grant funding from NIH.
